Internet neutrality question

CnCNet is vulnerable to net neutrality:

  1.  CnCNet uses IRC which is a chat service that may be seen by an ISP as being competition for their approved chat services. Any disruption to IRC would disable CnCNet.
  2.  CnCNet creates UDP tunnel connections that might look like competing VOIP services or might appear to be P2P file sharing services. Without net-neutrality rules, ISPs will have a pre-chosen Voice service app and a pre-chosen file sharing application that their customers can use exclusively.

Removing net neutrality rules would only work in a healthy free market, which we don't have currently in America. In fact it might not even be possible to create a healthy free market in the ISP realm because internet service delivery relies so heavily on last-mile build-out. And last mile build-out is reliant on local right-of-way and every build-out causes more local construction headaches, the result is typically communities wanting to limit construction.
